Hi! I'm wondering if anyone uses an online rebates site or something like ebates or mypoints and so on. If so, which would you recommend? I think it's ebates I see on tv but I'm not familiar with them. I've used MyPoints in the past but I always forget! Any tips?

I've used RetailMeNot a few times. I googled "coupon for ___" (whatever online site I was shopping on) and a few coupon sites would come up. RMN had coupons/promo codes that actually worked more than the other sites.

No, the only thing i do is go through my upromise link whenever i can which gives me a small amount here and there that I can put towards my ODD's college student loans or college costs.

I usually just google promo code for whatever store I am shopping at and will try the codes that come up until something works. I can almost always find something that helps out.

Just a few days ago I downloaded the ibotta app on my phone.  You get a nominal credit on certain items but I figured heck, it is free and if I can get a Starbucks card out of it, why not.  (you can also get cash in Paypal account)

I used a referal code from a friend, so she received $5.00 for signing up!

Other than that I am not familiar with some of the other things mentioned.
